Knot books are great learning aids. You sit in your easy chair with some rope in your hand and amaze yourself with handy and useful knots you need to know. You even commit several knots to memory.
Six months later you find yourself trying to tie down a kayak in the back of your truck or on your car roof and wind up using the "Cluster Knot" - about eight granny knots on top of each other!
Enter the "Knot Card", smartly stashed in your glove box. With a quick peek at the little plastic cards, you are now confidently cinching down your cargo with a series of Bowlines and Trucker's Hitches like a pro! That is the idea behind the knot cards - having them handy when you need them.
We offer knot cards for fishing knots and rope knots. Both are a great aid to tying the right knot when you need to!

Many knots are not suitable for the risks involved in climbing. Seek professional instruction. Many of these knots have histories of use tracing back hundreds of years. However, many critical factors in their use today cannot be controlled, including: the appropriateness of knots used in particular applications, the age, size, and condition of ropes (knots weaken the rated breaking strength of rope anywhere from 50% to as much as 80%, even more in the case of old and worn rope); and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed.
